Yes to all the above, thread does not live to its full potential !
anyone has a good link to make patterns?
synth is the only one doing crazy stuff. someone try gradient dying something
hopefully I'll get my nose to the grindstone this weekend...will post
Ugh. Not buying raw denims to do this to... might do to a pair of normal dark jeans if I can find for cheap. Of course, I threw out a pair of decently sized jeans a year or two ago because I spilled HCl on them, which would be like, so unique and shit.
Or would this epically not work because I am le novice to not fvcking up raw denim?
stumbled upon this while looking for laundering tips; the result is pretty cool. i always wanted one of those christopher kane galaxy tees for layering so this looks like a pretty cool DIY alternative.
I was thinking about just completely cutting out the shaded area then sew in the denim from the inside then sand it down or let it fade naturally.
any ideas? Alternatively is to ship it to a denim repair shop
last night I started what may be my most ambitious clothing mod, turned out OK so far.
i was trying to emulate this HL coat:
I had a light navy mac made by martin and osa that I used as a base. I finished one arm yesterday, it was a bitch because I didn't want to sew down the liner inside. sorta subtle because the navy and black are so close in color, but the effect turned out pretty good. I ended up sewing the insert around all the edges, unlike the HL piece. The cut-out is pretty much perfect, looks a little crooked in the pic though.
Nice dude. Full pics soon?
indeed. i wanna try to get the second arm done this weekend then I'll get some pics. I also want to get silver zips put on the cuffs, but I think I'll have a tailor do it because I am worried about fucking up the liner. I'm a sewing newb.
like I said, the effect is subtle because of the colors...
alright, the next victims are the following. Not technically DIY because I am going to have a leather tailor do it. Gonna attach these sleeves to this vest. WUUT
I will hopefully also finish the mac this weekend.
I have a pair of old jeans I was thinking of dip-bleaching, but I don't know how to do anything cuz I'm a DIY noob lol.
I'm also not 100% sure what I want to do with the jeans. They need to be dyed first because they've faded in a way that I really don't like, and then I've saved tons of images of DIY inspiration.
I will def post when I get around to DIYing them.
Now everyone can be (almost) as cool as NOBD with a lower barrier of entry
Thanks, t_s. Just saw the link in the other thread.
